Marcio André is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under Fábio Andrade who is regarded as one of the top grapplers of his generation. A great story of success through jiu jitsu, Marcio André almost succumbed to the grooming of criminality, turning his back on this path through coach Andrade and his academy in Bangú, whose work with underprivileged kids has helped numerous others, including Isaque Bahience, Kaué Damasceno, Ronaldo de Jesus to name a few.

Marcio Andre Biography

Marcio Andre was born on October 19, 1994 in Bangu – a neighborhood in the West Zone of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Tragedy struck Marcio’s family when he was just two years old, with his father being murdered. Lacking a father figure while growing up, Andre started hanging around criminals and outcasts of society before joining a jiu jitsu academy at the age of 9-10. A social project that helped keep local kids busy and off the streets.

The aforementioned academy was Nova Uniao – Bangu, a class led by Fábio Andrade. Marcio remained under coach Andrade’s guidance in this small academy, training along side great competitors such as Kaue Damasceno, Isaque Bahiense, Iris Batista and many others.

Andrade became an immediate sensation at the junior levels, winning the CBJJ Brazilian Nationals (Brasileiro) and the Team Nationals (Brasileiro de Equipes) in 2010 and 2011 respectively. The continuous good results at the top competitions of the IBJJF calendar caught the attention of the mainstream media of the sport who started mentioning Marcio Andre as one of the top fighters of his generation, a reputation he continuously proved to be worthy of receiving.

In 2014, after winning another IBJJF world title, Marcio Andre received his black belt from his longtime mentor Fábio Andrande.
